ABSTRACT
The article discusses the effect of Medicare's policy of nonpayment for never events on Medicaid programs in the U.S. The Center for Medicaid & Medicare Systems reports that roughly 20 states are in the process of implementing this policy. Minnesota state law requires an adverse events reporting system and all hospitals have agreed that they would not bill any payer for a never event. Colorado is establishing a Medicaid list of reportable events. New York hospitals are required to report any patient's complication during admission and hospital stay.
